A list of why team Canada is so spectacular this year.
1. 14 Goal scorers after the first 2 games.
2. Jamie Bennâ€™s hat trick.
3. John Tavares with 2 goals and 2 assists.
4. Canada ties highest shotout goal total with 15.
5. Jamie Bennâ€™s unbelievably unselfish assist on Tyler Ennisâ€™ PP goal.
6. Ryan Ellis playing an incredible point shot position.
7. Chris DiDomenicoâ€™s hands and cycling skills.
8. Goaltending is never an issue. Pickard gets a shutout.
9. Fourth line is producing: Kane, Cormier and Della Rovere each snag a point.
10. Third period effort resulted in 6 goals; this team gets better as the game goes on.
11. Cody Hodgson quietly collects 3 points and was sound defensively.
12. Canada takes little to no penalties; they are a very disciplined team.
13. 7 Powerplay goals in todayâ€™s effort.
14. Della Rovere playing through injury.
15. And a partridge in a pear tree.
How do you stop an unstoppable team? Canada’s next game is tomorrow night against team Germany. Leafs fans will get a first hand look at how Jerome Flaake compares to Chris DiDomenico. I look forward to this one.
